Busy, busy, busy, lots to do, can’t stop for long, here’s what we’ve been doing–


We learned that mosquitoes outnumber every other kind of wildlife in Yellowstone National Park.

We learned that the state of Colorado does not think much of posting signs informing travelers of which road is at the next stoplight. Further, Colorado does not believe it helpful to refrain from changing road names every few blocks.

We learned that work zone speed limits in Colorado, Wyoming, and South Dakota are 65 mph, compared to 45 mph in Missouri. Freeway speeds are 75 mph.

We learned that the kids really DO travel well, and that we can take them again.

Independence Day:

Well now, THIS was a whirlwind weekend. We visited family, family visited us, and we blew things up.

Then the next day, the kids and I went to Marshfield for a family reunion. Then drove back. Yes, all in one day.

    you guys are as crazy as us! let’s see, we’ve spent 17 out of the last 25 days on the road, and we’ve covered about 4,000 miles in 4 separate trips. Thank goodness for Madie’s DVD player, DS, and assorted arts & crafts materials!

    I hear you! Driveway to driveway, we traveled precisely 4,151.0 miles on our vacation. That takes a lot of entertainment!
